Keep your residents and patients stimulated, entertained and happy.

Wednesday, 21 September, 2016

There’s nothing like brilliant entertainment to lift the spirits of your residents and patients.
When you give your residents and patients Foxtel you are giving them a world of entertainment, all at their fingertips. With a Foxtel iQ or MyStar HD box in every room, they’ll never miss their favourite shows, games or movies ever again.
This goes a long way in satisfying their entertainment needs – not to mention aiding your staff and make your facility more appealing than others.
“We’re seeing an increase in demand for Foxtel around Australia, particularly aged care facilities who want to take advantage of industry legislation surrounding extra services”, says Tom Enright, National Health Manager at Foxtel.
“Having Foxtel has shifted from a “nice to have” to a “must have” for a number of reasons – new residents are expecting the same Foxtel experience they previously had at their own homes, facilities are using it as a point of difference in a competitive market, and some are even using it as an additional source of income as an extra service”, Enright says.
To cater for facilities’ differing needs, there are two packages available which offer a Foxtel iQ or MyStar HD box in every room. The Aged Care Platinum package brings your residents over 90 channels they’ll love. From award-winning drama to news, lifestyle and documentaries, there’s something for everyone. Plus, residents can reminisce
over their favourite movies on FOX Classics, experience the past with HISTORY and follow their team on 17 dedicated sports channels.
And there’s also the Standard Aged Care Package, which offers just over 20 popular channels from across the range.
With a Foxtel iQ or MyStarHD box in every room, your residents and patients can pause, record and rewind live TV to help them?relax and watch what they want, when they want. This interactive entertainment set-up improves their viewing experience and can make them generally happier.
And it also helps keep the visiting grandkids entertained and out of mischief.
